“Dad, I’ve found a fossil.” These words led to one of the most important archaeological discoveries in history. In 2008, nine-year Matthew and his father Professor Lee Berger discovered two-million-year-old fossilized bones belonging to a young male and a female. The Skull in the Rock details their find and its impact on what we know about human evolution. To make sure that everyone who reads the book can take part in the adventure, the authors continue to cover new discoveries on the website www.scimania.org. Even if science isn’t your thing, this book is a fascinating read.
